Mrs. Amanda (Caul) Brainerd d. soon after the birtli of
her child. Mr. Joshua Brainerd d. in Livingston Co.,
N. Y.

This Joshua Brainerd enlisted, when a mere youth, in
the Eevolutionary Army for a short period, and was sta-
tioned at Eoxbury, in Litchfield Coimty,* where in camp
he was taken violently ill with typhoid fever, and was
taken to a house near the camp for treatment, and shortly
after that time it was reported that he was dead and the
military forces were moved away from Eoxbury, and the
general belief, from reports and rumors at his home, was
that he had died. This, however, was not the fact. He
lingered along between life and death for some weeks,
and then slowly recovered his health.

About that time he met with a ])aity who were bound
upon a hunting and trapping expedition into the wilds of
northern New York, and-he joined with them, and they
engaged in the fur business. He was living in the wilder-
ness, and in those davs there were no mails in that part
of the county, and no railroads and telegraphs, and he
did not correspond with his family and they believed that
he had died at Eoxbury as was reported at the time.

He died a martyr to the respect of the feelings of his
neighbors. A vessel brought the dead body of one of his
neighbors to the wharf at New London, Conn. No one
was willing to risk their lives by attempting to bury it, as
they were afraid he died a victim of yellow fever, which
proved to be correct. He remarked to his wife that his
neighbor deserved a decent burial and he should have one
too. " Ho with the assistance of Mr. Eyan and two other
neighbors went to New London, obtained the body and
dug the grave. In less than four days both himself and
Mr. Eyan were dead. Each left large families ; crops were
short, nearly all of the men were engaged in the War of
1812 : not enough men at home to harvest the crops,
women must both sow and reap. Soldiers frequently
landed at New London and raided for supplies. The
suffering for food from these causes combined was hard
to contend with. Mrs. Spencer lived through these trials
bravely, and brought up each of h^r seven children so
